governor as president obama is being president in chief, not a campaigner. there's no margin for christie to play party politics. he needs to get the job done as governor because as steve says, his job will be judged by how he handle this is hurricane. >> steve, how do you think the romney camp views this, who does need this and some other margins between now and next tuesday? >> no, they're at cross-purposes here. christie is about -- right now he's imperative to appeal to blue state voters and the romney imperative is to sort of make obama look bad and win over swing state voters. it's another example. we've seen it a few times this year with christie actually, the same dynamic. i can think back earlier when romney was trying to stone wall on taxes, and christie was put on national television and christie quickly realized he doesn't want to be making excuses for mitt romney not releasing his taxes. it's going to go over horribly in new jersey. doesn't look good, period. it was christie much all people who said, you know what, mitt romney should release his taxes. we've seen this a few t

whether it's prudent or proper for either president obama or governor romney to return to the campaign trail. they're operating with very little information. we can't know at this point just how devastating the damage might turn out to be. as a result i think both campaigns are being very cautious about what they do other than paying attention to the storm. >> woodruff: susan, what's your read on how the campaigns are dealing with all this? >> i think there are two things to look at. one is just the logistics, for instance, does this storm affect early voting that's going on now in ohio and north carolina and virginia? but a second thing is the larger atmospherics. what is the effect of having president obama go off the campaign trail back to the white house? the white house just this afternoon released a photo of him meeting in the situation room to get an update on storm damage. it seems to me that has an impact on a race where governor romney has been making some progress in recent days. does this kind of freeze things for where they are now. >> woodruff: that's what i want

president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected president. that's an important issue distinction. coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public thought that governor romney was more likely to take the country into a war, than was president obama. but the public also believed that president obama had gone around the world apologizing. now in the last debate, governor romney reassured that he was not as likely to take people into war as they had thought in that debate. and i think that was a callated strategy on his part. now, you uld y, "d it was illegitimate. you secretly know that he was more likely." but nonetheless, what we can measure is whether they get what he said he was going to do in the context. and i think that president obama responded to the apologizing around the world claim in a number of ways that were effective as well. and i think one of the things that we can say about debates making a difference is that, had there been debates in the goldwater/johnson election, had there been debates in the mcgo

governor romney was going to endorse president obama. [applause] we roman catholic say that boy had an epiphany. governor romney went from sank it was a mistake we did not leave 30,000 troops in iraq. he sounded like he was against the war from the beginning. i was amazed. he went from labeling russia last year as the single greatest geopolitical threats to the united states and even opposed the new gun control treaty that every republican said to push that, he said he would not have supported it. all of a sudden we can work with russia. you know that. did you hear that? i thought, turn that tv up. he is now putin's best friend. when as in the second debate what would you commit to, he said it depends. with these guys it depends on everything. it always depends who they're talking to or where they are. it depends on what the vote is. it always depends. [applause] i am from pennsylvania. the grandfather always said be aware of the convertists. one issue they cannot bring themselves to say they now agreed with us on was issues relating to women. think about it now. they are ready to jett

people blame it on global warming, including al gore and governor of maryland. on the margin this hurts obama a little bit in that it ads to the sort of general feeling that things are amiss in america. specific terms, you know, one swing state most affected by this storm, pennsylvania, and if there is one place you could see the effect of the hurricane, hurting voting turn-out is in philadelphia. maybe on the margin that helps the romney campaign in state of pennsylvania. >> bret: let me push back. it hurts because things are amiss in america? >> i would no sense suggesting that people are going to rationally conclude obama is responsible for the hurricane. of course not. but if you looking at a candidate, incumbent and ask am i happy with the state of the country right now, possible on the margins to effect the tiny group of undecided voters at this stage, you know, the fact there is a hurricane and ugly pictures on television add to the cumulative effect that america is not going in right direction. >> response and how it, the response has gone arguably you had new jersey governor ch
